Over-Thumb

Sometimes the secret to success is to pick one thing and do it well. You could easily make the presumption that "image editing" may count as a thing, but in this case, think even more specific. Over is an app that specializes in letting users place text or basic artwork on top of their photos.

Seriously, that's all it does. And it's done it well enough to attract millions of users on iOS and, according to TechCrunch, a million in funding (which the developer reportedly turned down).

The time for Froyo has finally come for Dell's first Android device - and I'm sure all 12 US and Canadian Streak owners jumping for joy. Dell announced today that it has begun a rollout of the long-awaited bump to Android 2.2 for its tablet-phone in North America, dragging only a few months behind its UK counterpart. The update, to be clear, is an OTA. The Dell release suggests rebooting your phone will detect the update if the rollout has reached you.

Samsung-Captivate

AT&T has just started incrementally rolling out an over-the-air update to Samsung Captivate users. The update is 12Mb in size and is composed entirely of bug fixes. I would think that they would focus all their energy on getting Froyo out to the Galaxy S phones but, apparently, whatever this update fixes is more important.

Here is a snippet from the AT&T website that explains a little bit further:

Update: this OTA also includes a GPS fix, according to a Samsung email we just got:

An update to improve the Samsung Captivate's GPS performance is now available.
